About St Luke's Church
Who we are ..
St Luke's is a family of believers, a group of people from many different age groups and backgrounds who meet together in order to worship God and encourage one another. We want people to know and experience the same Christian faith that has made such a difference in our lives and the lives of millions of people around the world.
Our passion is to inspire people to get to know God for themselves and to live powerfully for Him. We also seek to inspire others to "love their neighbour" and to do one another "good"
What we do ...
As a church we do more than gather together to worship God. We also believe that the church should be working and serving in the very heart of the local community.We seek to serve our villages through our community centre, nursery, peschool, community cafe and youth work, through our community care network and through our shop. As a church we want to stand out, we want to be a force for good, we want to be a blessing to our local community.
So what do we believe ...
Simply put we believe what the Bible teaches. We believe that we should live our lives according to the principles it teaches like loving our neighbour, or telling the truth rather than telling lies.
We believe that as people we should be kind and caring. We believe that we should obey the law and pray for our government. These are just some of the principles that the Bible teaches.We believe we should live our lives in such a way that it pleases God.

We also believe that God gives each individual different gifts and abilities that are meant for use in building the church.
The evangelical/pentecostal movement is the fastest growing group of churches in the world today numbering millions ...
